The final qualifying work is devoted to the study of the professionalization of the creative activity of the community of street artists, namely, the systematization and analysis of ideas relevant to the subculture of street artists about successful strategies of social mobility, interpretations of the mission, the motivation system that allows us to judge the features of the professionalization of street art classes. The inclusion of street art in the framework of official art violates the basic premises of its existence, thereby changing the understanding of the role and meaning of street art, the motivation and choice of ways to develop and realize the artistic potential of the community members who create it. Analyzing the data obtained using a number of qualitative and quantitative methods of data collection (expert interviews and media content analysis), the author shows that it is possible to draw a conclusion about the professionalization of street art practices, which has its own specifics. The professionalization of street art takes place through the joining of the elite.
